Comal ISD Superintendent Andrew Kim was named the 2018 Texas Parent-Teacher Association Superintendent of the Year at the organization’s annual meeting July 20. Each year, the Texas PTA recognizes a few outstanding educators who exemplify its mission of making every child’s potential a reality.
“Mr. Andrew Kim came to Comal ISD six years ago bringing an innovative and a sincere approach to education,” said Shirley Koop, president of Comal ISD’s Council of PTAs. “He immediately began building a relationship with our council of PTAs and shared his vision of making our district a community where every student succeeds.”
One of Kim’s nine nominations read, “He listens. He teaches. He empowers. I’ve never met a more passionate superintendent who stays in touch with the parents as much as Mr. Kim.”
Kim attributed this recognition to the great relationship Comal ISD has with its PTAs across the district.
“The Comal Independent School District is successful because of the relationship with our PTAs,” Kim said. “This relationship is very precious to us. I want to thank our PTA Council and all of our PTAs and members. Not only do you make me a better educator, but more importantly, a better person.”
Every Comal ISD campus has a PTA unit, and each PTA achieved a membership increase this year. As a result the district was also presented with the first-ever Diamond Award by the Texas PTA.
